Hillary Clinton got choked up during a powerful, emotional and gracious concession speech in which she thanked her supporters and encouraged all Americans to support President-elect Trump.
Hillary acknowledged the white elephant in the room, saying … “We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. We must accept this result and look to the future.”
She added, “Being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life. This is painful and it will be for a long time.”
Hillary went on to thank, with extremely heartfelt words, the women who’ve put their faith in her — “Nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.”
